Vikings: Nobody Likes A Rat

IGN.com – In the opening sequence of Vikings’ “Blood Eagle”, Ragnar Lothbrok deftly skins a rat as he discusses what is to be done with Jarl Borg with King Horik and his brother Rollo.

Actually, Fimmel Loves His Rats:
The frozen rats were ordered for the scene, in fact, at the instance of Travis Fimmel, who plays Ragnar. IGN had the opportunity to visit the Vikings set in Ireland, where we witnessed Fimmel – a self professed farm boy – mutilate rat after rat as they ran through the various takes.

“I just want to make it Viking,” Fimmel said when we asked why it was important for him to have the rats in that scene. “I don’t want it to be contemporary, you know? They did all that stuff back then. I just want to show to stay true to that. People had to eat rats; they had to eat whatever they could eat. I want the audience to cringe at that sort of stuff.”

Having seen the episode play out in full, it seems that Fimmel’s rats also worked to highlight a season long theme: betrayal and its cost.

Why Rollo Was Forgiven:
We’ve already seen Rollo climb his way back into his brother’s good graces after his brief alliance with Jarl Borg. “It had gotten to the point where they’d locked horns for so long that they were just going to have to fight each other on the battlefield and settle their differences that way,” Clive Standon (Rollo) said of his temporary turn against his brother.

Perhaps Borg witnessed the forgiveness that was bestowed upon Rollo and assumed that he too would be shown mercy, but Ragnar has no tolerance for his enemies. “I think Ragnar’s all about his children and his blood. He has women issues, but he loves his kids to bits and loves his brother,” Fimmel said of his character’s willingness to accept Rollo back into the fold.

Siggy, Floki, and Horik – Dangers Within:
Ragnar faces potential enemies at every turn these days, though. King Horik, who’s very much driven by his own ambitions and as Siggy said, not to be underestimated, is certainly not trustworthy.

“It was very expedient for him to team up with a visionary like Ragnar,” Donal Logue, who plays Horik, said of his character. “But at the same time, once Ragnar became really powerful — and he could see that he was extremely ambitious — he realized that he was dangerous.”

The King is clearly going to use every tool at this disposal to gain an advantage on Ragnar, and that includes as Siggy. “Her ambition is still in place, she isn’t satisfied with her status,” Jessalyn Gilsig (Siggy) said of her character. “But the way that [Vikings creator] Michael [Hirst] writes is that nobody is just one thing. So as much as she’s ambitious and feels entitled, she’s also a woman who is vulnerable to affairs of the heart. She’s also lost a lot and is trying to find a sense of place, which she’s trying to do with Rollo, but it’s a struggle. She wants Rollo to be a man who she can mold into a place of success, but he’s such a wildcard that he’s hard to harness, and they struggle with that.”

“She has to compromise herself to make progress,” the actress went on to say, touching on Siggy’s dynamic with the King. “She is doing it for Rollo. She is putting her money on Rollo to get where she wants to be, but if he can’t deliver, she’s willing to jump ship. Eventually she is just fighting for herself.”

King Horik is luring Siggy in, making her offer after offer, and ultimately, as the actress told us, the question will become: “Will Siggy perform this great act of betrayal in order to get what she’s always wanted or will she stay loyal to this family who has saved her?”

Floki is also seeing his loyalty to Ragnar tested. “Being the fundamentalist he is, he’s not very fond of Athelstan and Ragnar’s loyalty and friendship to him,” Gustaf Skarsgard (Floki) said of his character’s motivations. “He’s keeping an eye out for Ragnar so he doesn’t cross the gods too much. He thinks about Ragnar, both in terms of where he’s going religiously and as a leader. I also think Floki doesn’t necessarily have that sort of ambition and power, but he definitely has an ambition for recognition, for his art and craftsmanship. I think that he feels a bit set aside by Ragnar and his f**ing empire and his kids and everything. I think there’s a risk that he feels left out a bit.”

Threat To The West:
Meanwhile, to the West, Ragnar’s once beloved friend Athelstan is living in the midst of his greatest enemies and may hold the keys to the great Jarl Lodbrok’s downfall.

How do you think all of these various schemes and maneuvers will all play out over the last few episodes of the season? Will Ragnar have finally met his match in a foe with the face of a friend – Floki or Siggy? Or will the fates deliver the death blow to his ambitions using the arm of his one-time slave Athelstan? Or will Ragnar triumph over all?

Of course we can look at some of the history for these answers, but the show is taking liberties, so we can’t be entirely certain which direction it will go.

Vikings Goes to War: “Everyone’s Lives Are at Stake”

TV Guide – Ragnar (Travis Fimmel) and Rollo (Clive Standen) might be reunited, but we wish it was under happier circumstances. The Vikings brothers have united against an even bigger enemy than each other: Jarl Borg (Thorbjorn Harr), their former ally who’s taken over Kattegat as revenge. But will Ragnar and Rollo be able to work together again after all that’s happened?

“I think with those circumstances it doesn’t become about the brothers feud anymore,” Standen tells TVGuide.com. “It becomes about the feud of Kattegat and the future of their land and the people that live in Kattegat and the surrounding area.”

“There’s a whole kingdom and the kingdoms at stake. Everyone’s lives are at stake when Jarl Borg comes onto the scene,” Standen adds.

But while the stakes might be higher, Ragnar will find himself at a disastrous disadvantage in his second face-off with Jarl Borg. Not only will Ragnar be distracted by watching out for his son Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig), but between all the men lost in the first battle and those who are still in England, Ragnar’s forces are severely depleted.

“There’s no warriors left. There’s just old men and children left,” Standen says. “It’s going to have a devastating effect so it’s going to bring everyone together. Plus, it’s Vikings against Vikings again. They know all their strengths and weaknesses. It’s a lot more bloodthirsty. It’s a lot more brutal.”

This fight will be particularly personal for Rollo, who betrayed Ragnar in favor of Jarl Borg before surrendering when victory was in sights. “I don’t think Jarl Borg will ever forgive Rollo for that. And Rollo is hard to read so you never really know what’s going on in Rollo’s head so I’m sure Rollo’s got a few surprises for Jarl Borg as well,” Standen says.

The new war will also force Rollo to face a particularly painful part of his past in Floki (Gustaf Skarsgard). After Rollo nearly killed him, the ship maker isn’t quite as quick as Ragnar to forgive the shamed brother. “Floki and Rollo have had contention that started off quite early in Season 1 when Rollo was christened and it just escalates … right up until the climax at the end of the season,” Standen teases.

Are you excited to see another Vikings vs. Vikings battle? Should Floki forgive Rollo?

Vikings airs Thursdays at 10/9c on History.

The wrath of Ragnar

Sydney Morning Herald – With their epoch-spanning reputation for murder, rape and taking things without asking nicely, Vikings could argue – if they weren’t also hopelessly illiterate – that they have been the victims of bad PR.

“What was written about Vikings was documented by hostile witnesses such as Christian monks, who had an interest in exaggerating many aspects of Viking life,” says Michael Hirst, writer and creator of the Emmy Award-winning series The Tudors and now the brains behind Vikings on SBS.

“Showing the world from a Viking point of view has never been tried before, because people think they’re unsympathetic characters who attack and kill innocents,” he says. “But I find them very interesting. They’re not angels, but their culture is rich and sophisticated.”

Speaking in Ireland on the set of season two, Hirst explains his difficulty in finding the right man to play Ragnar, the Norse warrior and legendary Viking chieftain on whom the series is based. “Vikings have always been seen as sort of one-dimensional comic book villains: hairy, violent and badly-dressed,” he says. “I’ve always thought of Scandinavians as being intelligent and having depth. I wanted someone who is very thoughtful and not just loud and out there and who wants to kill everyone.” After auditioning “beefy guys who always shouted in a rather comical way” and some “very pretty English actors” whom he doubted “could convincingly kill anyone, let alone lift an axe,” he received a self-made tape from former Calvin Klein model and Echuca boy, Travis Fimmel. “Who knew?” Hirst says. “An Australian!”

“Travis did the test in the kitchen of his farmhouse,” Hirst says. “He didn’t bother trying to disguise his Australian accent; he didn’t dress up as a Viking like lots of people had done – he just did the scene and did it rather quietly, with pauses.”

On the soundstage, the softly spoken Fimmel is feeling down about his performance. “God I suck in this scene,” he tells no-one in particular. When the director calls ”action!” Fimmel must not suck, but rather lick the skin of a white snake writhing in the hands of a blind soothsayer. Throughout the sequence, his Ragnar is calm, menacing and ponderous; precisely the qualities Hirst found so magnetic. “Aussies have sort of a different mentality about certain stuff,” Fimmel tells me between takes, theorising about the success of Australians in LA.

“I mean, so many Americans have been doing jobs for so long that maybe they’ve got the same mannerisms or they look at life the same way. I just think Aussies have a different attitude towards life.”

He acknowledges the flood of expats in Hollywood, looking for roles that are next to impossible to find at home.

“I get sick of Aussies camping on my couch,” he laughs. Fimmel would like nothing more than to disconnect from the nonsense of modernity and get back to the simplicity of farm life in Echuca. “I’d love to live in this period,” he says of the 7th century. “You’ve just got to survive. I’d love no phones, no MTV and all that stuff.”

Lunchtime and the smartphones Fimmel so despises, are whipped out by young Dublin extras dressed in the auburn robes of Dark Age monks. The boys mingle and text in the sun while unconsciously rubbing the expansive bald spots shaved into their heads. In the canteen, a bearded man dressed as a fearsome, hulking Norseman kindly asks the lunch lady, “How’s the soup?” Outside, a skip overflows with broken props from battles scenes (“When a character dies, we can reuse their shield,” says a crewman), and in the corridor are charred mannequins dressed as dead peasant children. Back to work and a make-up artist rushes on set to apply more dirt. It takes a lot of co-ordinated technological expertise to look barbaric.

Like his Vikings, Hirst has a lot to conquer. “I don’t want to stop until they find America,” he says. Credit goes to Columbus, but the ominous long-ships beat him by 500 years. Obviously, the Italian had better PR.
